Da Workshop #1: The Plan

2070 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 8 comments »

Yes, at some point, I hope to have a workshop for real. In the mean time, I’m stuck using my back porch. So, as such, I figured I needed to have a plan. Since my fellow LumberJocks have always been so great at offering tweaks and suggestions, I figured I would get some no BS critiques here that will help me refine my plan. As stated in a previous blog, I’ve decided to skip the table saw and go with a bandsaw. I just didn’t see any way around the bandsaw, but found alt...

Fibre, the LumberJock Way

2070 days ago by MsDebbieP | 18 comments »

Dec. 20/08 I just have to get another LJ Sweatshirt!! I love my sweatshirt so much that I wear it all the time around the house – I mean all the time, from morning to night. That means that when doing woodworking I get get covered with sawdust. Not a problem really, it is to be expected. But today I realized that perhaps I should have a sweatshirt for woodworking and one for the rest of my day. Why, you ask? Well, I’m sure I have sawdust in my bread dough. Most people rea...

I Love the Smell of Sawdust in the Morning

2070 days ago by michaelray | 0 comments »

Since I’m new to this site I’ll start with a little background about myself. I began woodworking when I was in my mid twenties. The place where I was working at the time was a packaging manufacturing company that would receive pallets of paper with 1×4’s on the top that helped keep the banding in place. It seemed like such a waste that these 1×4 boards were being tossed once the paper was taken off of the pallets. I really knew nothing about woodworking but I felt ...

Aurora Night Stand #2: Unexpected help

2071 days ago by Topapilot | 4 comments »

I mentioned in my first post how disapointed I was in the plans I purchased for the nightstand. Well, right away I recieved a PM from Darrell Pert, woodworker, author, and creater of the Aurora design. He offered help and sent photos that got me past a sticking point. This is a great community, and you never know who might be reading! To finish the assembly of the nightstand draw, I needed to make a sliding dovetail to attach the draw back to the draw sides. I really have been happy wi...

Origami Table/Stool

2071 days ago by KnickKnack | 5 comments »

Project is here. I finally bit the bullet and tried a design that included joints, moreover, important joints.I periodically go through the offcuts box to see if anything jumps out, and I had a few “long triangle” bits of ash. I’ve made stools/small tables in every kind of wood I’ve used except the ash, and, after a bit of playing about and brainstorming I came up with this idea. I’d also been wondering for a while about a “2-legged” table.It got t...

Dresser-top Valet/Watch Case/Charging Station #1: Planning the Valet Design

2071 days ago by asmang | 5 comments »

This is my first post here at lumberjocks so I thought I’d start off with a design I’m considering building. I’d like to have a dresser-top valet that’s large enough to hold two drawers. The bottom drawer is for things like cufflinks, rings, etc. and the top drawer is to hold five large (40+ mm) watches. Above that will be a shelf covered in flocking with an area to hold a cell phone, iPod, etc. behind. What I haven’t worked out yet are 1) are the dimensio...

Another Woodworking Video Site

2072 days ago by Scott Bryan | 1 comment »

I know that it is hard enough to keep up with all the postings on this site, much less the other woodworking sites that are popping up but here is another one that has just recently been announced. Wood Magazine has added WOODTube to their site. Here is the link that will take you to this site. Here woodworkers can both view and upload videos of shops, techniques and projects.
